I'm already saving for it, let's hope when it is finally released there will be plenty to go round.

All the best

Maybe there will finally be a m4/3 Olympus/Panasonic lens that interests me.

I'm just hoping they'll be selling them off cheap in Singapore aerodrome duty free in 6 weeks time!

Re: Sneak Peek new 60mm macro lens

Interesting - the crucial area for me is how it compares in handling with the 4/3 50mm f2 + m4/3 adapter +/- extension tube.

I expect the IQ will be largely indistinguishable, but it's likely to focus better. So the question is, whether that's much use to me for the macro work I do (mostly on a tripod...)?

I'll be very interested in everyone's experience with this, since I'm doing more and more macro these days.
